Join Us! Holiday Fundraiser

Dear CLA Families,

We are so excited to announce this year’s holiday fundraiser Heart & Home – hosted by Cherrydale!   With this fundraiser you will not only support CLA enrichment programs, but 40% of your sales will also be deducted from your fundraising fees.  It’s a win-win!  Fundraising catalogs were sent home in last week’s Friday Folders and include instructions to get started.  If you have additional questions, please click HERE for more information.

If every student sells a minimum of 10 items, we will hit our $5,000 goal as a school. The class that sells the most will earn an ice cream party!  All classes will be averaged by class size and sales to determine class winners. Winners will be announced to the whole school over the PA!

One Cup of Coffee Campaign

Dear CLA Community,

Considering the world today – it is evident that a strong Christian education could not be more important.  Are you looking for a way to support Christian Life Academy that will fit your budget?  We’re inviting you to join the “One Cup Of Coffee” Campaign!  — a monthly giving program. God is able to bless and multiply even the smallest sacrifice given in faith. Trade just one or two fancy brews for a donation by clicking HERE. Each month, your $10 (or more) donation will be added with others to make one significant impact!


For many CLA families and prospective families it’s very difficult to afford a Christian education.  You have the power to change all of that.

Here’s what appreciative parents are saying:

“Placing our child in CLA was the best decision I’ve made. Her confidence is back. She loves coming to school again. She is able to get one-on-one help and her reading levels have gone up. She’s learning new things everyday and enjoys it. She no longer feels overwhelmed. By keeping our daughter in CLA she will get the best education and learning experience there is.”

“CLA has been a second family to our daughter. She has learned so many things academically, socially, and spiritually. She is safe and appreciated by teachers and friends. The continuous effort to improve every aspect of the school motivates us to continue investing there and spreading the word in our community.”

Praise the Lord for these testimonies!  This is why we’re inviting you to join the monthly giving “One Cup of Coffee campaign.


Collectively, your ongoing monthly gift, along with others can:

  • Provide urgently needed support for families earnestly desiring a Christian education
  • Come together to help CLA build strong Biblical foundations in our kids in our communities

Our CLA families and kids are counting on you!
